Hey friends,

I am torned between choosing floorstanding speakers. I am stuck between JBL ES80 and JBL Studio 190. I am going to add new set of 5.0 speakers to Polk PSW 505 sub and Yamaha VX-473 receiver, 110 watt per channel.

Both speakers seem to have similar specs.

On left is Studio 190 and on right is ES80

Can some expert comment, which could be a better speaker, i am getting each of these for under $150.

Or if you would like to make suggestions from some other manufacturer, please feel free. I had option for Polk 75T for $130each.

But i am little biased and think high of JBL's.

Please Help.

The specs tell you that they both are very sensitive and will not require much power.

They also tell you that they both have reasonably good full-range bass response.

Beyond that, the only way to find out which suits you better is to try them in your home for a day or two and see.

Auditioning in a store is next to worthless, and trying to do it from spec sheets is a total waste of time.
